Mike Trout donates goodies to the healthcare workers of South New Jersey. Apparently, Hansel Robles has actually turned out to be good. In case you couldn’t read it yesterday through the Athletic’s paywall, the Angels are paying their game day employees and employees of their contractors. The total payout is greater than the million dollars each MLB team had pledged. (ESPN Video) Albert Pujols counting stats will of course be affected by the pandemic. And Fangraphs concurs. Bobby Winkles, former California Angels manager, has died at 90. The way is clear now for teams to screw over their employees on May 1, 2020 if they want to. Five of the top 25 outfielders since 2000 have played for the Angels. (Hamilton also got an honorable mention, although it probably had little to do with anything he did as an Angel.) I guess the Angels are good at the whole outfield evaluation thing. (Pitching, not so much.)
Sneaking in before the deadline: MLB, Ticketmaster, et al sued!
